I don’t know………but now….it’s time of At The Drive In.

This album is so good, it boggles my mind. Dare I say this is the best material they have ever released ? In any case, easily the best album of the year. If any band can trump this I will be amazed.

THE MARS VOLTA – Noctourniquet.


I’m always open and diplomatic to anything I review (no matter what my preconceptions may be), but it’s fair to say I easily fall for anything Omar Rodriguez-Lopez is attached to. Since the 2001 breakup of At the Drive-In, The Mars Volta has been my favorite band. With their sixth full-length album, Noctourniquet , The Mars Volta have made another shift in their ever-evolving sound and have put together what may be the best concept album I’ve ever heard.

Concept albums are nothing new, especially to The Mars Volta. The problem with many concept works is either that they never fully tie together for the whole album, or they need expansive explanation of a back-story from the songwriters to make any sense. Noctourniquet, due out March 27, 2012, may not be that clear of a story either, but from song to song it’s a journey, for both the listener and the characters entailed.

Through interviews and press releases, vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala has said his writing was influenced by the nursery rhyme of Solomon Grundy (a man who goes from birth to adulthood to death in seven days). The nursery rhyme was even recited in parts of live jams the band have performed. I became slightly confused when first listening to the album, as I didn’t hear the rhyme, nor did I understand what anything I was hearing has to do with Solomon Grundy. As I continued to listen it all became clear: The Mars Volta have created their own twisted fairy tale.

Each song acts as new chapter/landscape. A child (who will be referred to as he/him from this point forward) moves through the expansive world as it is invaded by a cavalcade of sounds. Imagine the album’s artwork as a vast plane the protagonist is traversing — suddenly, everything is jarred as the backdrops are shredded by cutting guitar notes, and the air fills with ominous synthetic noise.

In previous Volta releases, fans have been adamant that certain songs seem to interrupt the flow the albums. The changing sound-scapes of Noctourniquet can easily be pointed to as a prime example of uneven flow if the listener does not buy into the whole experience. The opening harshness and crass, overbearing style of “The Whip Hand” mimics the uncomfortable scenario the protagonist lives within. As he escapes, he becomes part of a world previously unknown. Each song adds another piece to the puzzle, as the child encounters new characters and situations.

By the time the album’s single, “The Malkin Jewel,” kicks in, a new character is in pursuit of the protagonist, pushing everyone further into this maddening world as the song’s chaotic ending comes to a head.

The album contains what may be the band’s most heartfelt melodies and lyrics. In past releases, Bixler-Zavala’s lyrics had always been enthralling chants of clever wordplay, and it was the music that seemed to draw the most emotional response. In songs such as “Empty Vessels Make the Loudest Sounds,” Bixler-Zavala creates some of his most strikingly down-to-earth metaphors. The implication of the lyrics along with the sweet- hearted delivery speaks volumes of someone in desperate need of help. That song in particular bears a mighty resemblance to the begging want and need of the trapped souls of Genesis’s “Home by the Sea.” The album speaks of no one real or that I could ever meet, but it makes me care and want to lend a helping hand.

Anyone looking for searing guitar solos and math rock progressions will be shocked when they first put this album on. When their previous album Octahedron was released, it contained the quick addition of a drum machine on one track. Further solo efforts from Omar Rodriquez-Lopez added synth to whole albums, but Noctourniquet takes the experience to a whole new level.

Typically, fans were used to The Mars Volta sharing a common sound through all their albums, while Omar’s solo work took things to extremes.

While the Volta sound is in no way gone, it has morphed into a new rabid animal that crosses popular genre lines. Newest addition to the group, drummer Deantoni Parks, provides a bridge from the old sound to the new with frantically precise staccato work that matches the fast drum machine feel with real world aesthetics. Radiohead has perfected the electronic sound rock movement, but Phil Selway’s drums mimic the sounds making himself even sound synthetic. Parks, however, brings a grounding sound level to the songs instead of creating one large jumble of bleeps and zooms.

Nothing is permanent in Volta-land. The next release may very well be a grindcore metal album. On first listen, some people will be taken for a spin and be ready to scream and complain. Don’t let the shock affect your views on the record. Turn out the lights, lay back, put on some headphones, and allow The Mars Volta to take you somewhere I don’t think any musical artist has been able to take you before. Open your mind and pay attention — The Mars Volta have just changed the game.

Download Fifteen Unreleased Demos From The Mars Volta.

Almost seven months after The Mars Volta broke up, its two masterminds have already moved on to their separate projects Zavalaz and Bosnian Rainbows. However, given the sheer amount of material that guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez likes to record, one could easily predict that some studio leftovers from the band would show up at some point, whether officially or not. The latter case happened earlier today, and the result is up for grabs.

It all seemed to originate with a forum post over at The Comatorium, where a user claimed to have received a private message with fifteen “Volta b-sides” and the instruction to “share this.” Sure enough, the files were spread among fans, and they were soon in the hands of former drummer Thomas Pridgen, who provided some legitimacy to the collection by stating on which tracks he had performed.

So go ahead click here to download 80 minutes’ worth of unreleased demos and (presumably) b-sides. It’s certainly a mixed bag with a few great standout moments and too few vocal tracks, along with a fair share of Omar solo demos that may or may not have been intended as Volta songs at some point.

The tracklist for the collection is as follows – and we’re not joking around, those are the actual names of the files, organized in alphabetical order, as they came with no specific order. Between parentheses you will find a possible explanation for the origin of some songs:


1- ,14 (possible outtake from Noctourniquet LP) 2- 98d87 ( Molochwalker demo) 3- cmv8 ( Sea is Rising demo) 4- dp (possible Omar Rodriguez-Lopez solo demo) 5- ef4 (possible Casate Colmillo demo) 6- eog-3 7- f39h (elements later used in the live version of Trinkets Pale of Moon ) 8- f9h0 (another possible Casate Colmillo demo) 9- k49 (possible outtake from Octahedron LP) 10- pi4 (possible Happiness demo) 11- qr5` 12- s[fqw (similar to the first track on the collection) 13- xv8 (possible New York City demo or Asco Que Conmueve Los Puntos Erogenos demo) 14- y2g ( Vicarious Atonement demo) 15- ytj6 (also similar to the first track on the collection)

More information on this as it becomes available – especially on whether or not those file names are the result of singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala typing at random, something we wouldn’t put past him. And not long after this story was posted, the singer released an official statement:

The recent TMV leaks are from a session we did w/ @davidguetta during our residency at Ibiza hot spot RAMROD — CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) August 16, 2013.

Update: While the rest of the internet took that ball and ran like hell with it, nobody seems to realize that Cedric was very likely quoting Stefon from SNL:

Jesus facepalming Christ, people. Do some fact-checking.

original title for the TMVleak was 1S2PFTB ( one in the stink two in the pink flicking the bean ) but @davidguetta suggested LIVE at RAMRODS — CEDRIC BIXLER ZAVALA (@cedricbixler_) August 17, 2013.

A Blood-Soaked Kristina Esfandiari Channels Elizabeth Báthory in King Woman’s “Psychic Wound” Single and Music Video! [Watch]


The epic Paradise Lost is getting reimagined with King Woman ‘s newest album, Celestial Blues , out July 30th via Relapse Records.

The gorgeous debut single and accompanying must-see music video for “Morning Star” made a surprise twist by turning singer Kristina Esfandiari into Lucifer, while the latest track, “Psychic Wound” , takes another sympathetic look at the story’s main character while also channeling Elizabeth Báthory.

“Psychic Wound” is one of the heavier tracks on Celestial Blues, which plays out like a doom gaze rock opera likened to classics such as The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, The Wall, Antichrist Superstar, and Operation Mindcrime .

“‘Psychic Wound’ is about paying the price for eating forbidden fruit,” explains Kris Esfandiari of the riveting track and its visual companion.

“When desire turns into obsession it can keep you longer than you intended to stay and nearly destroy your sanity.”

The “Psychic Wound” video is also directed by Muted Widows … Celestial Blues tracklist:

Celestial Blues was recorded in Oakland, California by GRAMMY-nominated engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Amenra, Oathbreaker). The band is rounded out by drummer Joseph Raygoza and guitar player Peter Arensdorf. Visual collaborations featured in the album packaging were created by Nedda Afsari, Collin Fletcher, and Jamie Parkhurst.

King Woman has confirmed a series of performances in support of the new album. Tickets and VIP Fan Club passes are on-sale this Friday, June 4 at 10 am pacific.

The Mars Volta is currently sending out a second advance track from its forthcoming sixth album Noctourniquet (out March 27 on Warner Bros.

Records) to those who have pre-ordered the record from

All Noctourniquet pre-orders, past and future, will now receive album closer “Zed and Two Naughts” in addition to the already delivered first single “The Malkin Jewel.”

“Zed and Two Naughts” will also be available as an a la carte download on iTunes beginning March 6, along with the previously available “The Malkin Jewel.”

“Zed and Two Naughts” and “The Malkin Jewel” showcase dramatically varied and contrasting extremes of a 13-track album that explores territories previously uncharted in The Mars Volta’s acclaimed and uncompromising discography. The spectrum of musical and emotional textures on Noctourniquet ranges from the opening bombast of “The Whip Hand” to “Zed and Two Naughts” grand finale, punctuated throughout by hypnotic melodies and borderline electro-ambient washes, most notably in the epic “In Absentia.” The bold diversity of the new material combined with Omar Rodriguez-Lopez’s assured producer’s hand guiding The Mars Volta’s most confident and refined performances to date make Noctourniquet an early contender for this year’s most challenging and rewarding listen.

As with previous Mars Volta albums, including the gold-certified De-Loused In The Comatorium and Frances The Muteand The Bedlam In Goliath (which featured Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy winner “Wax Simulacra”), Noctourniquet was written by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala and produced by Rodriguez-Lopez.

Noctourniquet was performed by The Mars Volta lineup of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Juan Alderete de la Pena, Marcel Rodriguez Lopez, and Deantoni Parks.
